  • 3 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs 
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 large sweet onion 
  • 1 tsp paprika

  • 2 tsp onion powder 
  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • ¼ cup avocado oil (sub olive oil)
  • Juice of ½ lemon 


  • Start off by preheating your grill to 400 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, combine all the seasonings, along with the lemon juice and the avocado oil. This will make a nice paste
  • Season the chicken thighs with salt first and then the seasoning paste. Coat them really well and set aside.
  • Slice up the veggies into strips,( remove the seeds) you don’t want them super thick strips. Slice them about 1/4 inch thick
  • Then, grill up the chicken. Turn the chicken every 2 minutes until it reaches an internal temperature of 175.
  • Place it in a foil and wrap it tightly once it’s all cooked. This will prevent it from getting cold.
  • Place a skillet over medium high heat. Add some cooking oil, about a tbsp. Then, sauté the veggies for about 7 minutes or so. Seasoning them with salt, black pepper and paprika for color. You want the veggies with a nice crunch to them
  • Once they are done, set them aside and slice up the chicken into strips.
  • Next, heat up some flour tortillas. Let’s assemble! Add the veggies along with the chicken. 


You can add shredded cheese to the fajitas if you like. Serve along Mexican rice and beans.
